|IMDB's home page. Do you notice anything?|
Today I bumped upon IMDB as I came to know that a fourth chapter of Toy Story is in production: a sad commercial move. Anyway, when I loaded the home page, something has flashed before my eyes, something that should be self-evident by my screenshot above.
Hollywood's approach with violence - and guns in a particular way - clashes with many recent crime news and even with recent President Obama's words.
How do you expect that people stop killing each other, even without plausible reasons, if movies and culture promote the use of guns? As long as the coolness of characters remains proportional to the size of their weapons, it is no surprise that we won't do any progress.
However, this probably is not a problem for the lobbyists and I'm pretty sure that weapon producers are rubbing their hands for this kind of brain-shaping.
